Slots of Luck by L. Sabin |
Last week I took a drive to Buffalo Bill’s in Primm. They
have most of the popular new games and many of the older ones that are hard if
not impossible to find in Vegas.
One of these games, The Amazing Sea Monkeys, caught my eye.
Sea Monkeys features those bizarre little critters you used to find in ads at
the back of comic books, complete with their equally bizarre looking family and
There’s much more than just instant live eggs with this
amazing 20-line, 10x max bet game, which features scatter pays, two very
entertaining bonus games and a wild symbol.
The Great Sea horse Race Bonus is initiated when you receive
three symbols with a “Sea Monkey on a sea horse” in any position on
the reels. A second screen shows the sea horses lined up to race. Players choose
one of three sea horses to win.
The end of the race reveals hidden credits assigned to the
“win,” “place,” and “show” positions. You are
awarded the credits of the sea horse you choose.
The Bubble Spins is awarded when any combination of the
“1 Packet” or “2 Packet” symbols shows on reels 1, 2, and 3
of a played line. You get to pick a symbol to reveal up to 15 free spins and a
multiplier of 1, 2, or 3.
If a packet appears on the fourth reel during the free spins,
your multiplier is increased. If a packet appears on the fifth reel you get more
free spins. Players can also accumulate diamond symbols (wild with all other
symbols) on any position on the reels, which then migrate to the Diamond Meter.
The Bubble Spins bonus ends when no free spins remain or 90
spins have occurred. Then the Diamond Flurry bonus is initiated if any diamonds
were accumulated in the Diamond Meter during the Bubble Spins bonus.
A screen appears on which the Sea Monkey family is lined up
across the bottom with floating diamonds in the sea above them. You touch the
floating diamonds (1 to 8) equal to the number accumulated during the Bubble
Spins bonus. There is a range of hidden values under the diamonds.
I played 20 lines 2x bet (40 cents). On the second play I got
into the Bubble Spin bonus. I picked the 15 free games at 1x pay and the free
spins began. I started getting extra multipliers, extra spins and diamonds.
I ended my bonus with a 24x multiplier winning $72 and six
diamonds still to go. One of my diamonds was worth $50. I ended the bonus round
